Artist: Neil Thomas
Album: A Century of Lullabies
Genre: Progressive Rock and Instrumental Rock
A friend asked me today about what I did. I laughed really loud, and told him: "I took a trip into space and time."
Actually, I listened to Neil Thomas' epic album, A Century of Lullabies.
Oh my...I took me from the ground, lifted me in the skies, then left me falling into the most unfathomable depths...
It shook my world.
This album is a gift to humankind. A true gift, to cherish.
11 musicians, 3 guests, 11 songs, recorded in 3 locations between 1998 and 2010 brought us an album that's beyond everything else.
It's like if the band Dream Theater had put all of their discography into one single album!
How do I dare a comparison? There is no comparison possible.
One must hear such intensity, meaning, depth, insight, light, shadow, life, diversity, (the list goes on) to believe it.
To quote Neil himself:
"(...) I write songs because I have always enjoyed creating emotive and lyrical music (...)"
Neil, to me, you are a genius with a huge heart.
Everyone should have A Century of Lullabies in their collection. It's a must-have!
